Ball / Library of Congress

Our baby is very interested in bright colored balls. He crawls around our living room, pushing and throwing them, often for a half an hour at a stretch. He is getting good at kicking them too. I do my leg exercises, kicking balls back to him. Multitasking.

Other multitasking ideas?

Keep learning, brain…..

MIT’s Biomechatronics Group designs rehabilitation technology. It even comes up with limbs that work better than human limbs.

In the future, will rehab be an advantage?
